Company Law and General Corporate Advisory

Erdem & Erdem offers company law services to domestic and international clients operating in a wide range of markets. This process includes all phases of a company’s lifecycle from the preparation of the articles of association and incorporation to termination and liquidation. Within this context, significant structural changes such as capital increases, share transfers within the company, mergers and acquisitions, conversion of type, public offerings and re-structuring are carried out. We also follow up on the requisite day-to-day practices of companies, such as convening general assemblies and the preparation of board of directors’ resolutions.

Further, Erdem & Erdem offers services for setting up local and international consortia or joint ventures. We excel at defining the legal structure and mitigating the risk between the partners in the alliance. We eliminate potential problems with creative solutions.

We provide regular advisory to clients on a wide range of commercial arrangements required by their businesses in day-to-day operations, taking into account the nature of the business and the commercial and legal risks. Our services range from reviewing standard form agreements, to drafting and assisting with the negotiation of complex commercial arrangements, including product development, manufacturing, marketing agreements, licensing agreements, services contracts, outsourcing agreements, non-competition agreements and dispute settlement agreements.

We structure employment and consulting agreements, and advise clients on labor and employment claims and disputes. For many clients, we serve as outside general counsel, providing coordinated management of all their legal affairs, and advice and guidance with regard to general corporate matters, such as corporate governance, directors’ meetings and board resolutions, the rights and duties of management and equity holders.
